The sparse, reflective arrangement of Melbourne, Australia singer-songwriter Laura Jean's "First Love Song" may suggest a somber meditation on that most universal of human experiences. However, as Jean understands it, the truth is a lot less flowery. "This song is very straightforward to the point of being almost banal," she says: "I suppose on some level I meant it to be. Love stories are often boring."

Featuring background vocals from Jenny Hval, "First Love Song" is one of nine other tracks that form Jean's self-titled debut, to be released on August 22nd through Chapter Music.
